How did Microsoft spoof the idea of Xbox Originals? For one, they left out extra content, second of all, they left out achievements. But wait, there is more.
Aww come on Xbox Originals is like the Wiis Virtual Console. They are meant to be just what they were. If you want HD, online, and achievement features go into XBLA. That easy.
but Wii games don't offer Achievements like the X360. It's something so simple that get people and achievement whores to buy the game from the Marketplace. You can buy Halo 1 and many of the Xbox Original titles second hand from a second hand store for half the price of what MS are selling them at on the marketplace. If MS added achievements and some little extra's here or there, most people would buy the MS Marketplace version over a second hand copy. I'm guessing MS just haven't got the man power to add achievements to the games as they struggle to get a lot of the MS original titles to work on the X360, plus add the fact that they may not be able to add achievements to third party titles as it would need additional programming, which MS can't do for legal reason. All achievements are added by the developer, not MS. It's all a shame though!
they would have to rebuild the game from the ground up. They have stated this many times. For the low sales that originals would get it is not worth remaking the game.
I would replay some of these games if there was online and achievements to go with it.
If they where online to begin with they are still online! Unless you tring to say they add online to games that didnt have online to begin with than sorry. You really didnt state that! As for the achivments i fully agree. It sure would be nice to add new life into it.
Make it three; they should definitely add some achievements to these games. I would probably replay Ninja Gaiden if it had some achievements to go along with it; or even splinter cell. A definite missed opportunity.
but you're right, I mean adding online to games that didn't have it, but should have. halo combat evolved comes to mind:)
I'm still confused, Play games because you enjoy them, not for points
Tony240ZT...clearly you have never played a game with achievement points. They are by no means the reason I play games, but they are a great bonus feature that can add a lot of replay value. They can also inspire you to truly challenge yourself.
These games are not meant to be remakes. They are just what they call them XBOX ORIGINALS. Originals as in just what you had with the original game. There was never any promises that these games would have any of the extra stuff. They give 360 owners backwards compatibility on hundreds of games, xbox originals and then the arcade for games with HD, achievements, etc. Seems like someone just looking to complain again.
complaining about complainers are we? tut tut
Were discussed at length on one of the 360 podcasts when the Originals were first announced. It turned out that in order to incorporate achievements you'd have to decompile the code and go through and adjust a number of lines for an achievements to work, then recompile it. After words it would also have to be re-certified by Microsoft to make sure it was relatively bug and glitch free. A process that wasn't worth it apparently...
riiiiiiiiight, I rather they work on Xbox 360 please.....
That's the point. It isn't worth it waste the time, energy, and money on older games just to add 'achievements' and such. I mean no one is forcing you to purchase Xbox Originals versus going out and buying a used copy. Or you could not even both with them all together and play new games.
I've been wanting to play Indigo Prohecy, but it is going to be tight - fitting it on my HD - with my DLC and game saves. If I was like some of you who have videos and music stored on it, there would be no way. I would be easier and cheaper to find a used copy at Gamestop...
Halo,NG: Black, & maybe Psychonauts are probably the only ones that cost more than the 1200 points you're charged. Chaos Theory is like $3-4 now. Indigo close to the same.
In mi experience NGB was the one the hardest to find in "good" condition at a good price, even used ones retail for around $60-$80 and on Ebay the auction starts at 15-19 bucks and by the time it ends its some where back in the $60s or $80s -_- I also find the Digital version to be hard on the HDD, being a little bit more than 6GBs on your average 20GB is not very nice specially if you have a lot of DLC or demos :( my personal solution was getting Sigma...and a PS3 XD ...now I am poor -_-
"This Account has been Suspended" nice link Achievements would have been nice. My biggest gripe is the price. For less money I can go out and buy these games. Why pay more money for a download? If I really wanted them I'd rather go out and buy them, and save some money in the process...
Just so others are aware.. when I went to the suspended link.. NOD said.. http://www.555traff.ws/cgi-... trojan may want to remove this link just incase it isn't just me
I don't understand why they are moaning about no extra content. Tell me this: why would developers spend money, work and time on a game that has been out for three/four years, maybe longer, on a last-gen console when they could put that money and work force into a new next-gen game for a next-gen console? Financially and Logically it doesn't make it sense...
is in slim pickins round theses parts.
